The author chronicles his family's experiences before, during, and after the military dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983). He uses his diaries, interviews in Latin America and Israel, documents and pictures given to him by his family and friends and studies the works of political scientists, historians and journalists. He begins with his family's history from the time when they immigrated from Tsarist Russia to Argentina in the 19th century. Then, using his family's history as a background, he discusses his life as an exile in Israel and Denmark from 1976 to 1979, his return to Argentina to comply with military service in the Argentine Marine Infantry and his return to Israel in1980. During the Argentine dictatorship thousands of people "disappeared". Two million Argentines went into exile. This book makes an important contribution to the collective memory of Argentina and the concept of Never Again.
